Will Pope Bring Blessings or Curses to the Catholic Church?

Pope Francis will be welcomed to the Holy Land by Israel on May 25, 2014.  His visit will, no doubt, be touted by the press as a renewed call for peace and reconciliation among the diverse and divided population who call this place home.  His visit brings to mind the long and turbulent history of Christianity’s connection to Israel. The Pope is supposedly bringing with him a message of unity and peace however it is not for everyone.  Reports state that he is planning to meet with the Mufti of Jerusalem on Israel's holiest site, the Temple Mount.  What a slap in the face to Israel.  Clearly the Pope seems to be aligning himself with the Palestinians.
